    Pros

    Some smart people and good information sharing online tools are decent to work with. The culture is a competitive one.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of changes in the staffing in the last 2 years, and the culture has changed quite a bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The need to have more education programs for partners is essential. More online tools and resources should be made available to partners to empower them with ability to create sales and opportunities. The product feature velocity needs to be improved in areas where there is plenty of catchup needed.

    No strategy from corporate
    Australia treated as a second class citizen
    very little room to move within the organisation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits - the company is really set up well to look after employees. The HR and Talent Matters process is really good.

    Cons

    Ugly culture in the wake of the changes - there is not enough good leadership, other than the CEO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a team means more than organising drinks - it's about making sure that everyone is contributing and playing to their strengths and being honest with people if they aren't.

    Pros

    Good people, good management, its'a a company that 's big enough to engage the large opportunities and small enough to care about the outcome.

    Cons

    Product range is still somewhat limited. Market penetration is getting better but needs work. Marketing doens't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money on marketing - for every dollar you put in you'll get back three,... That's how CISCO does it.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with many of the Employees, from Engineers to SVP's. Great exposure loved supporting all

    Cons

    Worked many hours often not recognized as going above and beyond by peers. Viewed as sucking up. Loved my job no matter what others thought

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of upper management woodwork not the worker bees. Even though we as admins give advice it is often not taken. Arule that needs to come from the top down is WORK LIFE BALANCE all year round not just during the holidays.
